Amminadab I ("my people are generous") was king of Ammon c. 650 BCE. He is mentioned in Assyrian inscriptions from the reign of Assurbanipal. He was one of the rebellious client kings punished by Assurbanipal during the latter's Arabian campaign. He is mentioned on an inscription on a bottle unearthed at Tel Siran in Jordan, which inscription reads: mndb mlk bn'mn / bn hsl'l mlk bn'mn / bn'mndb mlk bn'mn "Amminadab [II] king of the Ammonites son of Hassal'il king of the Ammonites son of Amminadab king of the Ammonites [I]."[1]
